    Meet Kmana – Conscious World Wanderers

    Great news! Kmana is joining our PopUp Store + Events in Paris.

    Showcasing and selling for a whole week, Kmana is bringing conscious + ethical fashion to our “Creative & Conscious” Paris edition. Let’s introduce you now to a fantastic journey from how it all started for this ethical brand Kmana bags.

    Meet the Founder

     

    Change-maker Bea Sanz-Corella was born in Barcelona, Spain. Bea is passionate, kind and strong about her commitment to make a difference. She  has built experience and a career around anthropology, economy, yoga. She is also a mother of two wonderful twins.

    Bea, a gogetter woman ready to show share her positive vibes and charisma to the world with Kmana . This is what I’ve felt when I read about Bea’s story. I am feeling that we will have so great stories with Bea, our community and showcase globally the beauty that Kmana shares through designs and values.

    Bea’s passion around travelling began when she was a teenager inspired by the novels she’s read, and currently connecting experiences and stories to her life work. She has lived in and travelled all the continents, supporting and connecting like-minded international institutions, organizations and individuals in more than 70 countries, who work towards a better world. In 2013, after some years using the magic Emporda as a base and two years traveling with her family, she landed in Bali and fell deeply in love with the island.

    Ever since, Bali has been her home, she calls it ”the place to which she returns, to seek refuge and stand still until her next move, and the place where she has finally decided to follow her passion for sustainable design and bags”.

    The beauty & Story of Kmana 

     

    After settling in Bali and connect life and beauty of her now home, she decided to follow her passion and during 2015 she launched Kmana, a name that was created from  ‘Mau ke mana’ that is Bali’s ubiquitous greeting. Bea quotes “Kmana was born out of a desire to combine ethics and aesthetics, to serve the world’s wanderers. Men and women who, regardless of their age, desire timeless and unisex fashion produced sustainably in small batches”.

    A wonderful extract of the story of Kmana: The brand began working with a Balinese–Javanese family of gifted leather artisans, hand-crafting oversized bags for ourown travels. Soon afterwards, visiting friends and acquaintances began ordering their own personal bags and accessories. Without realizing, our bags started travelling outside of Bali, to Brisbane, Melbourne, Hong Kong and Barcelona. Now together with Slow Fashion World we will be traveling with Kmana to the rest of the world, starting Paris.

    What Kmana stand up for?

     

                                                                                           CHTWIN 6 – The Backpack

    Kmana is a team, a family that works around ethics, transparency and great design. Bea’s statement about Kmana;

    “We are a passionate, ethical, family-run design company producing leather travel bags and accessories handcrafted in Bali. Our designs are made for the wanderers, the makers and shakers, and all those who believe as we do, that we are constantly creating the world we live in. It all comes down to the decisions we make. Make your choice and shake the world in a gentle way”

    SUSTAINABILITY 

    Commited to Slow Fashion and developing a strong business with honesty, transparency and ethics, Kmana bags are “made to last decades if not a lifetime, if properly taken care of”. How are the bags made? Check out their website for full information.

    They make sure that the used is by-product of the food industry.

    Locally sourced and coming from family-run tanneries in East Jave, Indonesia.

    Using one piece of full-grain cow leather or sheep leather (i.e. one hide) for each bag, ensuring fewer seams and improved durability.

    We partner with like-minded individuals and workshops in Java to ensure the quality and transparency of the tanning process and minimize its environmental  and societal impact, namely through  the waste management procedures.

    We mostly use vegetable tanned leather,

    Tannins used to tan our vegetable-tanned bags are found in the local tree barks and leaves.

    The other elements of the bags is hand-made, traceable and, to the maximum extent possible, ethically sourced.

    Kmana is  strongly committed to continue researching the vegan option for our bags and to launch a vegan line, free from scary materials like PVC or polyurethane.

    What story is behind the Maya colection?

     

                                                                                         MAYA 3 – The Vertical Tote

    Inspired by Maya Angelou’s works and riveting personality, Kmana’s second collection is a tribute to the free-spirit of this remarkable
    Renaissance woman. Tall and regal, with a deep majestic voice, she was unforgettable whether encountered through sight, sound or the printed word.

    Kamana inspires the world by creating pieces that last and having a solid family that stands under ethical and quality values. Kmana bags are the ideal gift and must have for your next travel. For more about Kamana visit Kmana Concept.

    BUILD YOUR BRAND DNA

    BUILD YOUR BRAND DNA

    BRAND DNA: WHY YOUR VALUES ARE THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR MARKETING

    Do you know your brand’s DNA? Or does it even have one? In fact most businesses struggle with this very important point. But creating a brand DNA is key to establish a successful business that has an impact in todays world. Why so? I will try to explain it with an easy example: All of us know Patagonia – an American outdoor clothing company. If you think about them, what comes to your mind first? Right. Most of us will probably think about quality, environmentalism and integrity.

    Where does this image come from? This is easy to explain: Because Patagonia has a very clear, powerful and vivid brand DNA that sticks with the customers mind. It is proved that companies with a strong DNA appear to be more trustworthy, create better long-term customer relations and have more impact on society. Therefore, as a social entrepreneur, it is very important that you start building your own DNA right from the beginning.

    WHAT ARE YOUR VALUES?

    Your next question will probably be: How can I do that and where to start? To define your brand’s DNA you need to be aware of your own personal values and your companies core values. This is not only the foundation of your DNA but of your whole marketing. Unfortunately, most entrepreneurs skip this process or just pick random values without really living them. This might work in the short term, but not in the long term. If you want to build a community and a life-long customer relationship authenticity in your values is very important. Your target group knows when you are faking and not real.

    Please take some time, maybe go to a quiet and comfortable place and reflect on your own personal values. What principles do you live by in your everyday life? What characteristics do you like about yourself and others? What makes you happy and feel good? Simply write down everything that comes to your mind – without thinking or judging too much. Do you hate it, if your friends are always late? Maybe you need reliability. It is hard for you to lie? Than you are very honest. Just note all the values that resonate with you. It might also be: transparency, trust, love, humor, freedom, tradition, inspiration, creativity, innovation and a lot more.

    As soon as you are finished, take a look at your list and see how you can categorise your values. For example integrity and authenticity are similar aspects that go hand in hand. If you created those matching groups, highlight one word from each group that represents this category. Write all the values you chose on a single peace of paper and voila – You have got your personal set of values!

    PERSONAL VALUES VS COMPANY VALUES

    Your life can be much easier, when you acknowledge your values and integrate them in your everyday life. For example, they help you in decision-making, friendship and a lot more. But as a social entrepreneur, you have to expand them into your business. They define what your company stands for and lie at the core of its culture.

    Maybe you ask yourself right now, why do I need to know my personal values to define my company’s values? If you choose principles for your business that you can’t live by in your private life your are not authentic and after a while you will feel demotivated and less energetic. Therefore it is very important to combine your personal values with those for your company. But of course they don’t have to be 100% alligned. If one of your own values is to have a lot of fun and be humorous but your target group are accountants you can keep those just for your private life.

    DEVELOP YOUR BUSINESS VALUES

    First of all, take some time and look at your results from the task above. What core values did you choose? Now think about your business. What is your target group, your products, your partners and your goals? Try to be as detailed as possible and write down the most important points. Compare your results and analyse what of your personal values support your business? Maybe you come up with two or three more, that you didn’t put on your list before. This is no problem, as long as they fit you as a private person aswell.

    To ensure your core values to be truly powerful, make sure they fit the following key elements:

    They have to be memorable

    They are short and easy to understand

    You only choose a few put strong ones

    They are actionable

    You and everyone in your team is passionate about them

    Keeping these points in memory, now write down your core values you want to implement in your business.

    HOW TO USE YOUR VALUES IN MARKETING

    After figuring out your values, you need to find an effective way to communicate them and help your customers to identify with them. This step requires an effective marketing strategy. A key part for this is to use content to explain what you stand for and why. Share your messages with your crowd on social media, your newsletter, podcast, interviews etc and always spice them with your values. But make sure not being to pushy and always actively mention your values, but do it in a discreet way.

    Make sure, all the information you put out into the world is consistent with your brand’s belief system and follows this structure:

    Complementary: Every element of your brand’s marketing supports the others

    Continuity: Your communication is consistent and connected

    Consistency: Multiple messages reinforce and support each other

    Coherence: All communications are logically connected

    To get a better practical overview on how to implement those steps in real business life, check out the following example of how amazing integrated marketing (marketing that integrates the brand’s values) works.

    Condoms for Pets

    The San Francisco Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ran this ad in 2015 to create awareness on the need to spay and neuter your pet. Their mission is to educate people on the importance of neutering pets to save unwanted cats and dogs from getting euthanized (it happens to 4 million pets each year in the US). One of SFPCA’s values are bringing happiness and long lives to animals.

    The reason for this crazy idea of a campaign was, that they wanted to avoid being preachy by offering condoms for cats and dogs. How did they implement this marketing case? They installed pet condom dispensers in several parks and used Facebook and Twitter to spread the word about it. The SFSPCA’s campaign was immediately picked up and shared by 20+ international websites like Huffington Post and Adweek. And it become the no. 1 trending topic on Reddit and made it up to 30,000+ site views. Pretty insane, isn’t it?

        About Quilla Wasi

        Quilla wasi is about Perú,everything began in my constant trips to the interior of my country and to discover the great and the incrieble cultural baggage. I decided to found the collective that makes me interact and understand how my own culture is maintained and evolved. What do we do in the collective? We work with communities that preserve the art of weaving and transfer their knowledge, techniques and even style in fashion clothing, taking into account sustainable fashion as part of the value chain.

        Hilda Elizabeth Sánchez Coronado

        In a country where there is so much textile culture, I dare to say more than the Indu culture, the intention is to turn the economic wheel through the daily activity of the communities: based on the alpaca wool and based on a business fair . To talk with each artisan, is to enter a fascinating world, where they tell you their festivals, their customs of centuries past their concerns for modern society, their desires and continue weaving telling stories .

          About Van Jos

          Four sisters seated in a row, all wearing the same dress. The height of dullness, the second girl in the row – Jos – thought. Later she would do things differently.

          She had always loved fashion, because it offered so many possibilities. She took her aunt’s hand-me-downs and made new things from them. She learned her trade from the nuns at the housekeeping school, but her style was too daring for her to fit in at an atelier.

          Ideas arise naturally. As she sits in a meadow, running a lovely piece of worsted through her fingers, Jos gets inspired. She can translates even a pretty door into a blouse. Its striking characteristic? The contrast, material and shapes. Each Van Jos item is unpredictable and striking.

          The Van Jos label belongs to entrepreneur Rosa van Ederen, Jos’s daughter. Follow your heart, Jos told her. And who would ignore her mother’s wise words? And so Rosa set up Van Jos, alongside her work as a photographer.

          And Rosa? She just loves Jos’s avalanche of ideas, from her cute details, to her clever and creative solutions. She is delighted to pass on the finest selection of these to you.

          Rosa Van Ederen

          I produce locally in The Netherlands, so I know under which workingconditions my clothing is made. For my fabrics and wool I use stocklots fabrics and wool.

              AANIN Collective

              AANIN is committed to improving lives, preserving Amazonian indigenous textile traditions and being a catalyst for positive social change. Our goal is to empower indigenous Amazonian women, through promoting and preserving their textile art (little known, even within Peru) through the creation of high quality accessories, supporting community specific social projects and developing capacities. The textiles we use are handwoven with skills passed through generations of ancestors, and are a source of pride for the communities we work with. Our truly authentic and one-of-a-kind designs aim to showcase our partners’ ancestral weaving techniques and their wisdom and deep connection to the natural environment. All our products combine thoughtful design, social responsibility and the finest ethically-sourced materials as a tribute to Amazonian cultural traditions.

              Kristi Denby

              I am Canadian, raised in a ski town in the Rocky Mountains, and I have lived, studied and worked on 3 continents. In particular I have always been drawn to Latin American culture, studying abroad in Chile, surfing and driving to Panama from Canada with my best friend after university, spending significant amounts of time in Colombia with my in-laws, and now finally starting AANIN and working with other social enterprises in the highlands of the Peruvian Amazon. Professionally speaking, I have an extensive background working with indigenous communities around the globe, conducting environmental policy research and contributing to international development projects. I am passionate about slow fashion, social justice, artisan traditions, environmental sustainability, gender equality and creating real and lasting change in the communities I work with. Starting Aanin has allowed me to combine various strengths, goals and pursue my vision for a more just and equal world.

              Slow Fashion Journey

              Aanin is centered on building ethical and transparent partnerships with Amazonian weavers while sourcing the finest materials and working with small leather artisans to create one-of-a-kind handcrafted accessories. We are focused on preserving Amazonian indigenous textile traditions, improving lives and empowering the artisans we partner with, rather than exploiting them. It is extremely important to AANIN to building long-lasting partnerships, respect human rights and verifying ethical working conditions throughout our entire supply chain. We believe that ethical manufacturing must start from the ground up, and be applied throughout the entire supply chain. We are committed to transparency, environmentally sustainable practices and we provide support, skills training and mentoring according to each community or association’s needs. Simply put we are challenging the fast fashion industry because we are putting people, cultural artisan techniques and our planet before profits.

                Contelier

                Contelier is a creative consulting agency that connects diversity management with business development. Contelier is founded on the need for more diverse thinking in businesses and in particular the creative industries. We have seen far too many panels on diversity and diversity agencies that lack ethnic diversity themselves. We have seen far too many creative teams that are non diverse and in particularly exclude women of color. This has an impact on who is heard and seen and which products or services that are developed. We are ready to create change by bringing new ideas, products and services to the market.

                Faduma Aden

                We believe the slow fashion movement needs to include diversity. We believe sustainable fashion designer have the power to re-shape the industry on many front. It is therefore important not to forget about diversity while change is made. We can’t recreate the same fashion industry but only change the materials or the process of how the clothes are made. We need to also see the human side and see inclusion and representation as part of the change we need to make and as part of the future of fashion. Contelier is ready to take on this battle together with Slow Fashion World.

                  The Unmaterial Girl is sort of an alter ego I created after I decided to stop being a fast fashion addict and instead, became a slow fashion activist. I share my tips, insights, discoveries and DIY opp shop transformations through Instagram and my blog. I also speak at events in order to share my crazy journey so far, and inspire others towards a more sustainable way of shopping!

                  Leah-Jane Musch

                  I'm currently studying fashion with Billy Blue College of Design, so that when I step into the fashion industry I can be armed with a bunch of new and innovative ideas. Watching the documentary The True Cost literally changed my life. It opened my eyes to so many parts of the fashion industry that I had been personally avoiding, and once I saw that film I couldn’t deny that I needed to completely change the way I consumed. I sold about 80% of everything I owned, downsized to a one bedroom apartment and totally changed the way shopped. Mother’s right hand in the creation and execution of her Foundation Entre Soles y Lunas, inclined towards social environments. I found quite the mix!

                  Slow Fashion Journey

                  My blog contributes to slow fashion by inspiring and educating others about how damn fun it can be to get creative with second hand clothing, and that style never has to be sacrificed.
